Please, let’s take extended discussions about stories themselves to those stories’ comments section – this thread is for bringing up stories where comments don’t go the way OP expects and for meta-discussion about those comments.
Most recent NAR story as of this moment, but none of the comments have sympathy for OP for OP’s last sentence. (Note that, as I also pointed out in a comment, I still don’t 100% agree OP intended that sentence pejoratively.)
At the time of nominating this, I’m the only person who has commented, but I’m not anticipating the same amount of love to the owner that the OP has being reflected in the comment section.
All because of how he treated customer #1.
I’ll add the same caveat here as i did in my comment to the story: it’s possible that part of the story has been missed, in which case he may well have a valid reason for responding like that. But without a valid reason, he comes off as 100% jerk
EDITED TO ADD
Just realised… this is a Reddit story. I wonder if the full story for customer 1 is over there?
People are aruging over the legal defination of “step-father” and “legal father” in this story:
and later they’re arruging over the fact Jospeh and Mary “forgetting” about Jesus for four days. I mean they had an entire caravan of relatives with them. That would be like if entire British Royal Family showed up for an event and Prince George disappered and the Duke and Duchess assume it’s with Uncle Edward, or Cousin Zara’s family only to discover a day later he’s not with anyone.
What’s going on in that story is that one commenter is taking the religion-adjacent joke of the story way too seriously and everyone else is messing with them because they’re acting like it should be a theology lesson rather than a child saying something cute.
I try my best to inform customers of any shortages of the product they want when they order. And make recommendations on substitutions, if wanted/needed. I actually got quite a few customers hooked on a different flavor of ham then they usually bought.
I don’t know why neither OP nor their manager just asked to see the customer’s phone at any point in the interaction since they didn’t believe he had actually activated the points or even that he understood what they were talking about. It seems a little like malicious compliance to me - I’m not necessarily against that though!
